“a cabin that floats!”
Cabins and cottages are places where you can get away from it all and clear your mind. And this particular cabin in Maine looks like the perfect summer escape. This amazing custom, hand-built cabin floats! It's located on the island of Vinalhaven in Maine. The cabin can be seen floating on Perry Creek. Vinalhaven is home to several lovely parks and conservation areas, some are close to town, others are farther afield. Forming an arc across the western shoulder of Vinalhaven, the North Perry Creek Preserve offers its visitors a pristine snapshot of the region’s entire ecosystem. The shoreline, along a mile and a half of startling blue water, begins as the fresh waters of Perry Creek drain through wet ground at the head of the inlet. It flows east to the deep waters of Seal Cove, providing the visitor with the ability to travel from wetland to anchorage. A winter visit to the head of the inlet rewards even the minimally observant person with the knowledge that many creatures call this place home, as large and small footprints are so interconnected that it is impossible to distinguish the individual prints. Hikers can follow the shoreline trail as it dips toward and away from the water. Birdlife abounds. With ospreys nesting along its shores, and frequented by kingfishers, heron, gulls, owls, and eagles, there is no season when it is quiet on the water. As a preserve with many circuitous trail options, Perry Creek walkers can also explore the higher ridges away from the shore that offer views north, west, and south while traveling through a variety of terrain. The vegetative cover represents all of the larger island’s features: tidal flats, rocky intertidal zones, freshwater streams, tidal and freshwater marshes, vernal pools, and high, dry upland. As one visitor to the preserve wrote “ this island’s commitment to preserving public space is … perhaps the greatest testimony to its uniqueness and wisdom. A beautiful morning, a skyful of osprey, …a seal in the cove.” Builder: Unknown.
